OPTION

Aurizon Headquarters

Brisbane, Queensland

This beautiful glass tower and companion brick podium mediate busy Ann St and the garden setting of the historic Fortitude Valley Holy Trinity Church Precinct.

A landscaped pedestrian connection runs between the tower and the church precinct serving to connect Church and Brookes Streets whilst providing a transition zone between ecclesiastical and commercial activities.

A low-rise brick building forms the tower’s podium edge along this walkway and provides a companion building to the historic brick structures of the church campus including the Church, the Rectory and the Parish Hall.  The landscaping wraps around the base of the building towards Ann St drawing the garden idea around the ground floor lobby ensuring these areas enjoy a greener outlook.

The fifteen-level office tower incorporates wintergardens within a taut skin of curtain wall that has been folded back at its south and north ends to encourage view lines from Ann Street into the church precinct beyond.

The fold lines create an elegant end profile to the building whilst retaining a strong and singular presence on Ann Street. A glass canopy unfolds from the main tower facade on Ann Street to encompass the footpath and provide weather protection along this street edge.
